This brings me to childhood memories....I am going to list my favorite 4 because otherwise I could be here all night.
1. Family time. Growing up my grandparents lived on the lake and that meant swimming, fishing, tubing, hanging with grandma and grandpa and most importantly it meant family time. Things seemed so easy back then because family meant everything. It gave me some great memories but also it gave me the value of family. Never once did we starve, never once were we bored, and never once did I have white legs.
2. Lake life...Kind of goes hand and hand with family at the lake but seriously lake life! I have some of my favorite memories with my best friend at the lake. Pack a lunch, grab our fishing poles, a cooler with pop or flavored water, some snacks, a towel for taking the fish off, and we hit the canoe. It was killer when we had a radio with us. To think back now we never had a phone, we had a walkie talkie and if someone wanted us they knew where to find us. We were fishing, getting a tan and making the best out of the summer.
3. Vacations....one of my favorite vacations was when my grandparents took my brother and I to Duluth. Little did I know that grandpa would drive down the wrong way on a one way. And then 10 years later I moved to Duluth and drove down that same one way.
4. Cruising in the Delta 88.....I won't lie I did some stupid things in my first car, but man did I have fun. Hitting a mail box because I kept slamming on the breaks, or trying to get my car to go as fast as I could over the speed bumps, to getting pulled over in the used car lot because I was out after curfew. I honestly was looking for a car because I kept hitting the speed bumps and the car wasn't going to last much longer.
So as we finish up Hockey I hope my boys have made some awesome memories and ready for the next adventure ahead....spring, mud, and sunshine.
